WHERE DID YOU LAVE YOUR BRITCHISHEEN, JACK? AKA and see "Bring Back the Child," "Indeed! Then You Shan't/Indeed! Then You Won't," "No You Don't." Irish, Air (6/8 time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard (1981) says the tune was in traditional currency in the 1st quarter of the 19th century. The words to the first half go:

Where did you lave your britchisheen, britchisheen?
Where did you lave your britchisheen, Jack?
Where did you lave your britchisheen, britchisheen?
Under the stairway minding the pot.
